  • Cavity barriers can be used to sub-divide such voids as service shafts, roof and floor spaces and restrict the spread of fire.


In the absence of a specific test standard for cavity barriers LPCB offers certification of these products to:-

  • BS 476:Part 22:1987 Methods for determination of the fire resistance of non-loadbearing elements of construction or
  • EN 1364-1 Fire resistance tests for non-loadbearing elements, walls
  • EN 1364-2 Fire resistance tests for non-loadbearing elements, ceilings as set down in Approved Document B.

The assessment methodology used in LPS 1208 also applies to the performance assessment for these products.
